During a season-ending press conference with the regular motorsports media Thursday, NASCAR chairman and CEO Brian France discussed a number of subjects, including last week’s announced purchase of Iowa Speedway. France said NASCAR has always felt the Newton racetrack was “an attractive asset” in a NASCAR-centric region of the United States. He said, seeing Iowa Speedway go through management and ownership changes over the last few years, it has been keeping its eye on the track’s status. When neither International Speedway

Corporation or Speedway Motorsports Corporation were able to purchase the track, NASCAR stepped in. “[T]hey run multiple events for multiple series, they’ve had a lot of success,” he said. “The public companies that are in the space, for various reasons, the timing wasn’t right for them, but the time was right for us. So from a NASCAR standpoint, we’ll get to give some stability to a facility that needs that, number one.” France said NASCAR has a deep pool of talent to draw from to help run the facility. He also noted this isn’t the first time NASCAR or his family have owned FRANCE See Page 3A

A Newton man facing two burglary charges for separate incidents in February and May of this year pled guilty to reduced charges Tuesday in Jasper County District Court. Daniel Jensen, 50, was charged with both first-

degree burglary, as well as going armed with intent, and third-degree burglary. The first two charges stemmed from a February incident in which he entered the rural home of Larry Mick, attacking the homeowner with a claw hammer. The second stemmed from a May incident in which he at-

It was a very cold night, but with warm greetings and celebration at the annual Greater Newton Area Chamber of Commerce Christmas party and award ceremony held at the Innovation Center. The Christmas party brought a number of the Chamber business owners and employees to celebrate the season and the end of 2013 before preparing for the business of the new year with the upcoming 116th annual business dinner. “We’re going with a whole new format by approving the new Chamber Board members at the chamber breakfast to be held Jan. 9 over at DMACC,” Executive Director Darrell Sarmento said. “At the dinner we will discuss the future vision of Newton with different things we’re working on from the Main Street to the City Comprehensive Plan, housing initiatives, NDC, and NHDC is working on for us to look forward for the following year and for following years.”

It was the second annual Business Awards Ceremony for the Chamber. The Chamber had awards in eight categories that includes; Curb Appeal, Non-Profit, Social Media, Marketing, Small Business Retail, Large Business Retail, Staff Development, and Community Champion. The multiple award winner on the night included Skiff Medical Center, which tied for 2nd Runner Up in Curb Appeal and 1st Place in the Social Media. Skiff Medical Center CEO Steve Long was on hand to accept the awards for Skiff Medical Center. “They do an incredible job on community building and share on other great things happening in the community,” Sarmento said “We just can’t say enough on what they do for our community.” Newton Village was another multiple award winner tying with Skiff on Curb Appeal for 2nd Runner Up, and winning first place in the Marketing Award.

Continued from Page 1A racetracks outside of the France-owned International Speedway Corporation. “[W]e have in recent years bought a couple of speedways:  Road Atlanta and Sebring, so it’s not totally uncommon,” he said. “Our family owned Martinsville for quite a long time before ISC purchased it outright. This is not terribly uncommon, but at the end of the day, it’s an attractive asset at the right price in the right place, and we’re very comfortable having made that acquisition.” Earlier this week, the Jasper County Recorder’s Office estimated the purchase price of Iowa Speedway — based on taxes associated with the transaction — at $10 million. France was asked if it was possible that ISC could purchase the track from NASCAR in the future. He was also asked if ISC’s project at Daytona International Speedway played a role it not being able to purcahse the track. “It’s always possible,” he said about future ISC ownership of Iowa Speedway. “They made a decision that they had plenty on their plate. They’re not too far up the road of course in Kansas already.” With the ongoing “Daytona Rising” project, ISC has “hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars” of capital committed for the next several years, he added. “[A]lso I don’t think they wanted to lose their focus on all that,” he said. “[S] o they felt it wasn’t in their interest at this time.” The media also asked France about possible changes to the Sprint Cup Series schedule for 2015. A new television deal likely worth tens of millions of dollars to each track on the schedule will go into effect that year, but rumors have circulated for at least two years that changes could be coming. “Most tracks with a couple of exceptions don’t like to give up a date that’s worked for them and so on that they’ve had for a long time,” France said. “So there might be a change or two, but I wouldn’t predict any significant changes.” NASCAR is planning an announcement event for Thursday, Dec. 12. NASCAR spokesman David Higdon said the event will take place at noon, but a location has yet to be officially announced.

Usual Eccentric

Now that’s something to sneeze at The concept of the buffet-styled restaurant turns my stomach, specifically ones with working sneeze guards. Whenever I come across plastic, see-through partitions aimed at reducing the amount of contaminated food I digest a series of suspicious red flags arise. ProBy Will E Sanders ceeding with Creators Syndicate caution in such circumstances is usually the best defense a citizen has in the fight against people sneezing all over food. Quite frankly I don’t enjoy the idea of sharing a restaurant with those who feel it appropriate to spontaneously sneeze anywhere they please. Sneeze guards are bonafide evidence condemning any eatery in my book. It tells me which businesses tend to attract the sort of clientele that feels the need to sneeze all over fine buffet cuisine. Furthermore, if these people are so

uncouth and willing to sneeze on food then what else are they doing to food when nobody else is looking? What is stopping an uncivilized person who sneezes on food willy-nilly from picking up a crab leg, taking a bite and then sitting it back down in the heating tray? The answer is nothing, which is why I steer clear from buffets. Think how big of a problem sneezing on food was prior to the sneeze guard as we know it today. Was sneezing all over food happening that much? Is it too much to ask for people to politely turn their head, cover their mouth and nose, and sneeze in a direction opposite the macaroni and cheese casserole? In my limited experience and exposure with sneeze guards I’ve never actually witnessed someone sneeze on one. What are the chances of that? When I was little I thought the whole point of the sneeze guard was to sneeze on them. The name sneeze guard seemed more like a challenge than it did anything else. Just once I would like to go into a busy buffet after the monster truck rally lets out, walk up to the sneeze

The First Amendment

guard, and release the best exaggerated, old-man sneeze I can muster. But personally, I have this thing most people call common courtesy, which I exercise in many ways, including by not sneezing on or around food. History is peppered with several accounts of humans sneezing on food, and that all culminated in 1959 when an entrepreneur named John Garneau filed a history-altering patent for a device that is known today as the sneeze guard. Mr. Garneau was the owner of several American-styled smorgasbords and as such stood to benefit greatly with the invention since his customers apparently wouldn’t stop sneezing all over his food. Urban legend holds that Mr. Garneau was a seasoned sneezer himself and routinely sneezed uncontrollably on everyone and everything. In a time when the American economy is shuttering, sneeze guards are a healthy business to be in. Last year the sneeze guard industry raked in tens of millions of dollars — and that’s nothing to sneeze at. Even though I know nothing about the stock market, I believe sneeze guards will get us out of this mess. Put your money into gold or

silver if you must, but I believe sneeze guards are the sure-fire way of turning a buck on Wall Street. I say that because sneeze guards are here to stay. People will always place a certain value on putting food into their mouth that wasn’t sneezed on by some idiot. The last half-century has assured us just how far sneeze guards have come and what place they hold in the history of this planet. Many people are surprised to learn that President Barack Obama is a huge supporter and user of sneeze guards. The president has always been scrutinized for his constant use of teleprompters when speaking to the country. Those aren’t teleprompters, people — those are sneeze guards protecting the president from being assassinated by a wayward sneeze. Perhaps the most recognized sneeze guard is the Popemobile. That thing is a living, breathing embodiment of a sneeze guard. Nobody is going to sneeze on the Pope (or vice versa) in that contraption. It brings a whole new meaning to the phrase, “God bless you.” Gesundheit!

The Reading Link

Our children will carry on what we’ve started By Christine Pauley Reading Specialist Last week I introduced my imaginary friend. Jerry Spinelli shows his vivid imagination in his excellent children’s books.  I recently checked out I Can Be Anything!, illustrated by Jimmy Liao.   What a delight!   Look at every child you see and remember: A child is a person who is going to carry on what we have started. He is going to sit where we are sitting and, when we are gone, attend to those things which we think are important (or not). We may adopt all the policies we please, but how they will be carried out depends on him. He will assume control of our cities, states and nations. He is going to move in and take over our churches, schools, universities and corporations. All our books are going to be judged, praised or condemned by him. The fate of humanity is in his hands. So it might be well to pay him some attention. (Adapted, Unknown Original Source) Humans understand what they hear at least two to three levels above what they can read themselves.  It’s logical as you first learned by hearing.

quite understandable. A person with close personal ties more easily learns from others and likes to teach others. Competition is motivating if your success odds are fairly equal and you perceive the possibility of success. Healthy motivation comes from within the person or within the situation itself. Poor motivation comes from external sources, such as wanting to please a parent or teacher. Motivation needs practice opportunities enhanced by attention to the activity.  If it feels good or if it is exciting, the person will repeat the activity.  If there is a humiliating experience the person stops trying. Failure is not the barrier to motivation, but perceived shame or loss.  Failure motivates when we learn from it and perceive there is a chance to succeed if we try again. Thus, if literacy tools (books, magazines, newspapers, etc.) surround us and we spend time reading them, our children recognize they are an important part of our lives.  Giving lip service to literacy without practicing it is like giving lip service to faith without practicing it.  Our children and our friends’ children are the first ones to recognize when we are fakes.       Sometimes literacy events start out to keep a child occupied.  My granddad made me an “office” both at home

My home “office” included old checks, bills, letters, etc.  I also received guidance as to what “file 13” meant and that efficient offices were kept neat.  My first “office” was a corner of granddad’s large desk.  I had a special slot to put my “mail” ready to go out.  It always was “mailed”.  My supplies were in a small drawer.  Every so often something new showed up in my office supply drawer such as a new pen, pamphlet, or a stapler, Sometimes my “mail” ended up on our sharing board.  I decided once that I wanted to send checks in my mail, so Granddad showed me how.  My “office” motivated me to write more and more and furnished me with many pleasant memories.  All those years I was having fun and learning, granddad and grandma could get their business done.   Personal offices are strong incentives towards literacy. Plan the office together, even if space is limited and you need to use ingenuity.  First find a place in the home to set up the office. It might be a drawer that the child can easily reach to put their

office supplies. Note: this is not a junk drawer; it is an office drawer.  In it, put advertisements, etc. that have clean backs for the child to write “important” letters or stories - The more colorful the paper, the better. If space is really limited in your household, those plastic totes of all sizes make efficient offices. It is important though that a specific place for the office is designated, so that it doesn’t just become another toy. For office stamps, promotional stamps that come in the mail work well. For envelopes use the ones that you usually discard because you don’t order the item advertised. In the office drawer or tote be sure and include pencils and markers. Remember for the young child they should be large as young children haven’t developed the small muscle motor skills as yet. Next, specify a hard surface for writing. Have a special place for the child to “mail” his/her letters.  He may make post cards from the greeting cards you receive. Often children come up with a product that you can post on your refrigerator or bulletin board (perhaps one of the best literacy motivators) before it is “mailed.” Sometimes, too, the “mail” can be sent to loving relatives. Offices can be recycled love. Until next week — Christine Pauley

Court Continued from Page 1A dent. The agreement did not apply to armed with intent charge; a pretrial conference is scheduled for Monday, Jan. 13, on that matter. Mertz sentenced Jensen to five years in prison, with credit for time already served, and waived a $750 fine. A no-contact order involving Mick was extended for a period of five years. Jensen also pled guilty to seconddegree harassment in the case involving the May incident. Mertz sentenced him to one year in prison, concurrent with the sentence in the other case, and waived a $315 fine. A no-contact order involving Pence was likewise extended for five years. Trial in that case was scheduled to begin Monday, Dec. 23, in Jasper County District Court. In the run-up to the plea agreement, Jensen was entered into a dualdiagnosis treatment program at the Mount Pleasant Mental Health Institute. He claimed indigent status, which resulted in taxpayer funds being used to pay for his treatment. Mertz’ order states taxpayers will only pay for treatment that is approved by the Jasper County Central Point of Coordination in the future. Jensen was taken immediately to the State Medical Classification Center in Oakdale for inprocessing by the Iowa Department of Corrections.


Brock Update James Brock will have a preliminary hearing in Jasper County District Court on Monday on new charges of second-degree sexual abuse, a Class B felony, sexual exploitation of a minor and invasion of privacy. Brock, who was released on his own recognizance to await trial, will face federal charges stemming from the case next month. Trial is set to begin at the U.S. Federal Building in Des Moines on Tuesday, Jan. 14.

Rethmier said FFA has taken advantage of this opportunity and utilizes the apps, “Progressive Farm DTN” and “Ag News.” “We use them to research, ‘Why the prices are doing what they are doing?,’ pretty much all over the world,” she added. “It’s amazing to see how something in one area, say Brazil or Europe, can affect everything over here or something here can affect everything over there.” “Also, its neat if you see other

Miller Update Chelsea Miller, 25, will face trial on a charge of child endangerment resulting in the death of her 5-monthold son, Kaiden Olea, nearly two years ago, beginning March 5. A pretrial conference is set for Feb. 3. Miller was charged after police responded in January 2012 to a report of suspected child abuse. Kaiden was found to be in need of medical assistance and was transported to Blank Children’s Hospital in Des Moines, where he later died. The cause of death was determined to be blunt force trauma to the head and neck, which resulted in a firstdegree murder charge for his father, Joseph Olea, 25, who is slated to stand trial on his charges Jan. 21. Miller was charged for allegedly having knowledge of violent tendancies Olea possessed, and for leaving the child in his sole care. She is expected to testify as a witness on behalf of the state at Olea’s trial.

Initiative Launch team is within $13,000 dollars of the goal. The deadline for the pledges is set for today at 5:00 p.m. “We need pledges from $25 to $2,500,” Sarmento said. “We are $13,000 away from hitting our $80,000 a year goal, Main Street is a state-wide program that works.” Sarmento talked on an experience he had in Des Moines talking with workers about how do you get your town to get behind helping the community. The last multiple award winner was Hy-Vee. They won for Large Business Retail and were awarded a special Community Champion award. “They do so much for the community and we wanted to add something on to their certificate and recognize them as a community champion,” Sarmento said. “When you add up everything that they donate and discount to the community it would be up to $40,000 to $50,000 a year.” “We’re the county seat and we want all to be proud as people come and do business at our courthouse,” Sarmento said.

the beginning of October (2012) and they talked me and asked me, ‘What job do I want to be in?’” Vinnie said. “After viewing the options, I asked them, ‘What’s on the frontlines?’” The answer the men gave Vinnie was Cavalry Scout, which they described as essentially “an infantry on wheels.” Cavalry Scouts also serve as the eyes of their commander when out in the field and are responsible for reporting information on enemies, terrain weather. “I thought, ‘That sounds pretty cool.,” and I signed up for that,” Vinnie said. “October 26 is when I signed the papers and I became a U.S. Army National Guard member.” Vinnie said that his decision shocked a lot of his classmates at the time, but for the longest time he said he knew wanted to serve his county. He even foresees himself becoming a “lifer” in the service.

articles, even livestock related, since grain prices relate to livestock and livestock relates to grain prices,” she continued. “As of now, since corn is low, it’s great for livestock producers, even though it’s not for grain producers and it can change depending on the price for grain or livestock. It’s been really neat to see that stuff.” So far, the students have had 170 bushels of corn and 45 bushels of soybean donated to them, according to Newton FFA Teacher Michael Barr. He said this program will continue until the spring and anyone interested in donating should contact Key Cooperative in Newton. Newton FFA Vice-President Jarrett Horn talked about how this program benefits both farmers and students. “The nice thing about this program is farmers are able to support their FFA chapter with something they already do,” Horn said. “Their livelihood is growing crops and so they are able to support us, but we can also learn, ‘How to market this product?,” or, ‘What it’s like to be able to turn a profit on this stuff.’”

Although he displayed a penchant for the military lifestyle as a child, Vinnie said his parents were just as caught off-guard by his decision as his classmates were. “They were a little rash about it, but once they saw the dedication I had for it and how it made me feel as a person…sometimes in life you go, ‘I need a purpose,’ and for me, this is the perfect purpose,” Vinnie said. While Vinnie knows the military provides him with his perfect purpose, it’s still tough for any person to go from playing Perchik in “Fiddler on the Roof ” for the school play in March to attending basic training in the middle of the summer at Fort Benning, Ga. “It’s Zero Day ... 72 hours of pure hell,” Vinnie said. “You don’t get any sleep, you get yelled at a lot, everything you do is wrong and nothing you do is right. The initial 72 hours are supposed to break you as an individual and turn you into a team player.” For just about any career path being able to work as a member of a team is essential, but in the

military teamwork is absolutely critical. Vinnie said it took a while for him and the 133 other fresh recruits to mesh together and the toll of the situation was harder on some than others. “You learned to adjust very quickly and if you didn’t, you went pretty crazy,” Vinnie said. Luckily for Vinnie he was able to make the necessary adjustments to his situation and finished his 16 weeks in basics. He even got a nickname out of the ordeal. “They call me ‘Flower Girl.’” Vinnie said. “I’m paying for a wedding right now and I had no idea that flowers cost $600 and I was like, ‘Are you kidding me?’ and the sergeant were like, ‘That’s crazy. What’s up Flower Girl?’ And I’m like, ‘Oh, great.’” The aforementioned wedding is with his high school sweetheart Lily Brazelton and is set for early-January. With his wedding coming up and knowing he could be shipped out at any moment, Vinnie is still pretty composed about the whole situation and is looking forward to his new life.

Sister caught on camera denies stealing earrings DEAR ABBY: My parents and sister live three hours away, so my family stays with me when they come to town. Over the last few years, I noticed things began to disappear from my home. They are usually small and portable — earrings, in particular. The idea of someone stealing from me was very upsetting. When I mentioned it to my sister, she suggested that it could be our housekeeper. After my wedding band vanished, I had a security camera installed. A few months later, two more pairs of earrings went MIA, so I had the surveillance company review the tapes. It turns out the thief is my sister! The idea that she has gone through my things and helped herself with no remorse after I opened my home to her disgusts me. When I confronted her, she denied it. She later told my mother that she did take the earrings, but didn’t know why I wanted them “because they were so ugly.” Christmas is coming and I can no longer welcome her to my home. Why would she do this to me? — TRUSTED MY SISTER IN RALEIGH, N.C. DEAR TRUSTED: Not knowing your sister, I can’t say for certain why she would steal from you. She may have kleptomania and be unable to control her impulses. Or, she may resent you for what she perceives you have that she doesn’t (a happy life, lovely home, etc.) and has been taking the items to “even things up.” While I don’t blame you for being upset, please understand that whatever her reason, she’s a troubled woman who needs help. Unless you lock up anything of value, she should not be in your home. DEAR ABBY: We are part of a group of couples who meet monthly at one another’s homes to play cards. We usually play in the evening from 7 to 11 with the hosting couple providing light refreshments and dessert. Many years ago, one couple designated December as “their” month to celebrate New Year’s Eve. We start earlier with a meal and end

after midnight. The issue is that it has lost its appeal. Many of us would prefer not to be out on that particular night. How do we, as a group, let them know we no longer want to have game night on New Year’s Eve without hurting their feelings? They tend to be a sensitive couple. — PARTIED OUT IN OREGON DEAR PARTIED OUT: Unless one of you is willing to be the messenger and speak for the rest of you, you should tell this couple as a group — well before the end of the year — that you would prefer not to be out on a night when many of the drivers on the road have been drinking. It’s a valid reason. While the New Year’s Eve card game may have become a tradition, times change, and as people mature they tend to make more mature decisions. The one you’re making ranks high among them. P.S. There should be no hurt feelings if you suggest that the card game take place at some other time. DEAR ABBY: I’m a 58-year-old male. My wife divorced me last year after 33 years of marriage. Must I wait the recommended seven years before dating? I heard I must wait one year for every five I was married. — READY OR NOT IN MICHIGAN DEAR READY OR NOT: I wonder where you heard that! The answer is no. At 58, you had better start soon. You’re not getting any younger.

NHS FFA benefiting from ‘Bushels for Ag’ program By Ty Rushing Daily News Staff Writer Members of Newton Senior High School’s FFA program are getting a preview of their future now, thanks to the “Bushels for Ag” program. This program is done in conjunction with Newton’s Key Cooperative facility, which asks local farmers to donate portions of corn and/or soybean crops, so that students in local FFA programs can find ways to sell and market the items. “We market it through the Chicago Exchange, we can set prices for what we want to sell it at,” NHS FFA Treasurer Connor Claypool said. “Say someone donates like a 100 bushels of corn, we can sell like 20 bushels of corn at a certain price and then if it gets filled, then they go ahead and sell it for us. If not, we just keep the corn.” Claypool said FFA uses the funds it gains to help pay for chapter expenses. A prime example of this, was the students

of what farmers go through,” Claypool said is one the biggest advantages of the program. “There lively hood depends on the proper marketing of their crops. Whether we eat or not doesn’t depend on that, theirs does. It kind of gives us a taste of what

Cards prep for Invite; go 2-1 at Waukee

Cardinals take down Panthers

By Dustin Turner Daily News Sports Writer

Jocelyn Sheets/Daily News Putting the squeeze on is Newton senior Ray Schroder working for a pin of Knoxville’s Travis Poffenbarger in Thursday night’s home and season opener for the Cardinals. Schroder pinned Poffenbarger in the first period of their 195-pound match. Newton defeated Knoxville 4238 in varsity action. Newton hosts the Newton Invitational Saturday starting at 10 a.m.

Newton wrestling team opens season with win at home By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor NEWTON — Brett Wolf had the quickest pin of the night. The Newton junior put the Cardinals up 6-0 in the varsity dual with Knoxville’s Panthers Thursday night. Wolf pinned Gustavo Escorcia in 20 seconds at 152 pounds. It took the Cardinals a little more time than that to get the lead again. They trailed the Panthers 16-6 before laying down the foundation — five straight match wins — to a 43-38 varsity win over Knoxville in Little Hawkeye Conference action. There were only two matches decided by points

between the Cardinals and the Panthers. All the others were won by pins, except the 220-pound match. That was won by Newton’s senior Jacob Williams by forfeit. “What I liked the most tonight was our core values — the things we stress as a team — attitude and effort were great all night,” said first-year Cardinal head coach Andy Swedenhjelm. “We never saw a kid quit at either the varsity or junior varsity level.” Knoxville won the junior varsity dual, 46-36. It was a solid start by the Cardinals for the 2013-14 wrestling season. The Cardinals host the Newton Invitational Saturday with matches beginning at 10 a.m. at NHS.

It will be the last time the Cardinals will be at home until Jan. 9. “We’re excited about the tournament. We have six teams, which includes Knoxville and Sioux City North. Sioux City North is a great program. This Saturday will be a great opportunity for people to come out and see good high school wrestling competition,” Swedenhjelm said. Following Wolf ’s quick win, Knoxville’s Tyler Chatterton recorded a pin of Newton freshman Peyton Patterson in 1:42 in the 160-pound match. Jared McClung put the Panthers in front with a 9-0 major decision of Newton senior Sean Cook. New-

Jocelyn Sheets/Daily News Cheering on Newton’s 220-pounder senior Joey Wright are Cardinal head coach Andy Swedenhjelm (second from left sitting) and Cardinal teammates and others on the bench. Wright worked a third-period pin of Knoxville’s Brock Caviness to put Newton ahead for good in Thursday’s home dual meet.

ton senior Mac Icenbice was pinned by Jac Agan in 1:05 at 182. Ray Schroder, Newton’s only returning state qualifier from last year, opened his senior season with a victory. Schroder won the 195-pound match by pinning Knoxville’s Travis Poffenbarger, which halted the Panther scoring run. Newton trailed, 16-12. “I wanted to go out and be very aggressive. It wasn’t going the way I wanted at first. I took a lot of shots. He shot in and I worked my defense and got the takedown,” Schroder said. The pin came with 32 seconds remaining in the first period. “As a team, all the other guys worked hard. They are seeing the hard work they’ve been doing in the (practice) room paying off. Even if they didn’t win their match, they learned something they could take away from the match,” Schroder said. “Our junior varsity guys started off winning a lot of the matches and they worked hard.” Speaking of working hard, Cardinal senior Joey Wright did just that and it paid off in the 220-pound match. Wright and Knoxville’s Brock Caviness battled to a 5-5 deadlock after the first two minutes of action. CARDINALS See Page 2B

WAUKEE — Newton sophomore Isaac Webb came within .2 of a second of pulling down a more than 30-year old school record with his time of 2 minutes, 2.43 seconds in the 200-yard individual medley and the rest of Newton’s swimmers held strong to their times as the Cardinals went 2-1 at the four-team meet held at Waukee High School on Thursday. “Webb came so close to breaking that record,” coach Dave Hook said. “It’s been a Newton record since 1982, and it’s only a matter of time before he breaks it. The Cardinals took down Grinnell (59-35) and Lincoln SWIMMING See Page 2B

Iowa women upend Syracuse IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Melissa Dixon scored seven of her game-high 27 points in the final 1:22 as No. 25 Iowa came back to defeat 22nd-ranked and previously unbeaten Syracuse 97-91 in the Big Ten/ACC challenge Thursday night. Dixon hit all 27 points — on 7 of 11 3-pointers — after halftime as Iowa (9-1) clawed back from a 47-37 gap. Bethany Doolittle scored a career-high 25 for the Hawkeyes, Samantha Logic added 14 and Kali Peschel 10 with eight rebounds. The Hawkeyes hadn’t led since 12:06 of the first half when a Dixon 3 brought them to 71-69, and then Peschel grabbed a defensive rebound and scored for a 7271 lead. Syracuse (8-1) was led by 25 points on 10-for13 shooting from Brittney Sykes, who also hauled down 10 boards. Sykes scored 10 of her points in the final 7:14 as she and Iowa’s Dixon and Logic traded baskets and the lead.

PCM’s mid-weights shine in season opener By Dustin Turner Daily News Sports Writer MONROE — When the solo light lowers from the ceiling at the Mustang gym, the PCM wrestlers know the spotlight is on them. It burns hot and bright, but PCM’s wrestlers shone brightest when all was said and done on Thursday night. Prairie City-Monroe wrestling coach Cory Waddell said going into the season the main focus would be on conditioning, and with North Polk and Pleasantville visiting Mustang territory, his team was sure to be tested. The good news about the Mustangs was they responded. PCM took down both the Comets and Trojans fairly handily. PCM started the night with a 50-21 defeat of North Polk and finished it with a 57-24 stomping of the Trojans. “You never know what to expect the first meet out. Especially with 7 seven guys in the line up for the first time in varsity action,” Waddell said. “I was pleased with the performance of everyone. Our veterans stepped up and did what they needed to do to make sure we won both meets.” PCM See Page 2B

Dustin Turner/Daily News PCM’s Ronnie Marshall works out of a hold during his match with North Polk’s Luke Jacobs. Marshall would go on to pin Jacobs in 58 seconds.

Cardinals: Sophomores, freshmen hit the mat with success Continued from Page 1B In the second period, Wright got the upper hand and never allowed it to slip away. He scored on a reversal then had back-to-back three-point near falls. Wright finally pinned Caviness in the third period with 1:18 remaining in the match. Wright’s win put the Cardinals back in front, 18-16, then Williams’ forfeit pushed it to 24-16. Matches dropped to the lighter weights for the second half of the dual. Senior Koby Hull and sophomore Hunter Versteegh made quick work of their Knoxville opponents. Hull pinned Ben Wooldridge in 59 seconds for the win at 106, followed by Versteegh sticking Preston Lee in 40 seconds at 113. Newton sophomore Cole Peters was pinned by Skylar Cunningham of Knoxville in 1:13 for the 120-pound match. New-

ton’s final match win of the night was at 126 when sophomore Parker Schuster pinned Trevor Meyers in 1:18. Freshman Brady Smith fought off being pinned several times by Knoxville’s Riley Spaur in the 132-pound match. Smith lost his first varsity match 13-0 to Spaur. Knoxville’s Kieran Robuck pinned sophomore Bryce Tish in 2:42 at 138 and Nolan Crossett of Knoxville pinned freshman Justice Borger in 1:18 at 145. “Our kids will get better at things with experience. I’m proud that we had three freshmen wrestling their first varsity matches tonight and did a good job against quality opponents. They fought hard,” Swedenhjelm said. “We’re not wrestling at the pace I want us to wrestle at yet, but that will come. We need to get better as getting out from the bottom and setting up our (takedown) shots.”

The Cardinal junior varsity began with three straight pins by Early Kimmel, Tanner Petro and Nick Geelrings. Newton won just three more of the next 11 matches. Reed Shepard, Logan Zibert and Harley Walker won by pins. Kimmel and Walker were 1-1 in junior varsity action and Trevor Miller wrestled two matches, losing both.

Swimming: Cards’ Invite on Saturday Continued from Page 1B (54-40), and despite a 63-31 loss to the host-Warriors, Hook came away feeling very good about his team of strong swimmers. “The meet went very well,” Hook said. “We did what we wanted to. We thought we had a good shot at both Lincoln and Grinnell and we would give Waukee a tough run for their money.” Newton had standouts in all different types of events on the night. The 200 relay team of Austin Bunker, Landon King, Webb and Lensing took secondplace at 1:44.39, Bunker won the 200 freestyle (1:52.88) and the 500 freestyle (5:26.14) and Lensing took the 50 freestyle (22.77). “I feel like we’re really strong in every event,” Hook said. “Whether it’s sprints, relays or distance races, we have a really

strong team. I’ve been pushing them hard in practice with long yards and tough sets, but it’s nice to see them respond. They were tired, and to see them all pretty much hold up their times anyway is encouraging.” Webb finished second in the 200 individual medley, with teammate Jeff Fitzgerald taking fifth (2:26.15). King placed fifth in the 100 butterfly at 1:06.33. Lensing finished at 50.66 in the 100 freestyle, placing second. Jacob Thomas was fifth in the 500 freestyle at 6:52.43. Newton’s team of Lensing, Fitzgerald, Bunker and Webb was second in the 200 freestyle at 1:34.85. Its B team of King, Trotter, Paul DeHart and Christian Laube placed fifth at 1:48.80. Webb won the 100 breaststroke at 1:03.79. Newton hosts its invitational Saturday at the Newton YMCA. Races will begin at 10 a.m.

Raider grapplers drop dual at Nevada By Jocelyn Sheets Daily News Sports Editor NEVADA — Collins-Maxwell/Baxter’s Raiders began the 2013-14 wrestling season Thursday at Nevada in Heart of Iowa Conference action. The Raiders posted four victories — two by forfeit — in the dual with the Nevada Cubs. The Cubs won the dual 48-24. CMB’s Jordan Coughenour pinned Nevada’s Lucas Schneider in 2 minutes, 30 seconds, winning the 160-pound match. That evened the team score at 6-6. Nevada was up 24-6 be-

fore CMB scored again. Archer McFadden and Dawson Dahike won by forfeits at 220 and 285, respectively. Bailey Holgate pinned Nevada’s Evan Webb at the 3:10 mark of their 132-pound match for the final win of the night for the Raiders. Jacob Hennick and Frank Mittlestadt were the only Raiders to wrestle a full six-minute match. Hennick lost a 5-2 decision to Nevada’s Evan Rix at 113. In the final match of the night, Mittlestadt dropped a 5-1 decision to Traye Pelzer. The Raiders compete in a tournament at Bondurant-Farrar Saturday.

PCM: Weight drop pays off for Mustangs’ Marshall Continued from Page 1B Luke Cummings kicked off the year 2-0 for the Mustags with a forfeit win over the Comets and a pin on North Polk’s Graham Hoshaw. Ron Marshall started his year off with a pair of pins, as well. He took down Luke Jacobs of North Polk in 58 seconds and followed it up with a 1 minute, 2 second pin of Gunner Sampson. Lucas Rains went 2-0 as well. He wrestled at the 182-pound class and pinned North Polk’s Jake Cory in an even minute. He got a tough challenge from Pleasantville’s Joe Kauffman, but Rains pulled out a 9-7 decision. Jaret Maggard wrestled at 185 pounds and took down the Trojans’ Will Anthony in just 13 seconds. This was after a dominating majority decision 14-5 over North Polk’s Justin Rolf. Chase Palm, the 106-pounder went 1-1 on the night with

a forfeit win. Xavier Miller picked up a majority decision win over Chase Erickson in the 113-pound division. He pinned Pleasantville’s Buddy Felt in 1:04, as well. “Our freshmen in the starting line up all came away with at least one victory with Xavier Miller recording two victories in his first high school action at 113,” Waddell said. “Ian Reed at 145 showed his hard work over the summer to improve. Ron Marshall looked very comfortable at the 170 weight class after being an undersized 182 last year.” Tristan Clark went 2-0 at 126 pounds. Clark won by forfeit and pinned Pleasantville’s Chris Morris in 1:26. Matt Chizek pinned Jared Warner (Pleasantville) in 34 seconds and won a decision over the Comets’ Isacc Sharp 12-6. PCM’s James Maggard went 1-1 at 138 pounds, defeating

People may not mean to step on one another’s dreams, and yet discouraging words could be exchanged while Mercury and Neptune are at odds. Refuse to take offense. Let the opinions and information you hear inform instead of upset you. This is easier to pull off if you can detach yourself from what you do. You are not your role. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 6). Your personal magnetism is amplified. You’ll use this charisma surge to create a reversal. You’re good at building things and relationships in 2014. February’s work focus oddly leads to more fun. April and August are best for travel. Competition will motivate you to make a serious commitment and stick with it. Cancer and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 12, 31, 28 and 44. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). If you are patient enough to commit to taking slow and deliberate action, you’ll avoid mistakes and increase your awareness to

ensure that you are actually accomplishing something. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Recycling isn’t just for glass and cardboard. You’ll find something to reuse and repurpose, and the extra value you squeeze from this will help you reach a financial goal. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your needs will swing like a pendulum. First, you crave comfort, and then, excitement. You’ll flirt with melodrama and romance and then return to that stable, steady source. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’re likely to become quickly involved with new people, and you’ll place your trust easily, not making anyone work too hard for it. As long as you don’t make agreements that stretch beyond today, this will turn out fine. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You don’t like to force things to fit, because even if they finally move into place, they are likely to pop back out at the slightest provo-

cation. You’d rather keep searching for something that feels absolutely right.

their goals, and this is what allows you to get your own needs met.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Art has a way of challenging you in a way that strictly logical pursuits cannot. It’s as though the music fully grasps you whether or not you can fully grasp the music.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Laziness is an obstacle you’ve overcome plenty of times in your life, but usually it’s someone else’s laziness. You’ve always been among the hardest working of people, and that trend continues today. Your reward is imminent.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You use your instinct and intuition when there is little else to go on. But if you also remember to use it when you have plenty of other information, the result will be impressive. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You can speculate all the live long day about what might happen if you try out your various options, but you’ll never know for sure until you put yourself in the situation. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Contract negotiations, legal matters and joint ventures are among the favored opportunities of the day. At the front of your mind is your desire to help others with

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re likely to encounter a strong masculine energy, and the smoothness of your day will depend on how well you work with this kind of force. Figure out who does this well, and take your cue from this person. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your work habits may seem erratic to the casual passerby, but they don’t understand the politics involved. Sometimes you have to circle around your project in order to appease all of the right people. COPYRIGHT 2013 CREATORS.COM
